2020 Distance Learning for Students with The Stock Market Game Programs 
As the education landscape changes to distance learning for the foreseeable future, the SIFMA Foundation has been working hard to support our teachers in continuing to offer the SMG program to students:  

The SMG Student Activity Packet: A self-paced guide for students covering financial concepts and tools for students to manage their Stock Market Game portfolio.  SMG_activity_packet March 2020.pdf

InvestWrite Essay Guide for Parents/Guardians:  With the current market fluctuations and its impact on your students' SMG portfolios, now is the perfect time for your students to reflect on what they've learned via our national and state-wide InvestWrite essay competition.  To make it easier for you to submit essays, parents/guardians can now support their child's involvement and submit essays directly.  If you would like to provide that option, click and download here.  ​
As always, follow us @SIFMAFoundation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for program updates.
